I had a very similar idea and posted it a while back. The device would attach to your strap and hold picks, a capo and a slide. For pick distribution, it would use a spring loaded dispenser much like some cars have coin dispensers that you can "load up". The capo would slide into a formed pocket and the slide would pop into a cavity and be held in by little arms.
Never made a prototype so by all means have at it. Just don't forget ol' Nubs when you get rich off it
Acoustic guitar players, especially in the bluegrass world, tend to love Blue Chip picks. If you buy one ($35 + shipping) you learn to never lose your pick. Worked for me! I also have more than one BC haha.
Don't wanna sound like I'm boasting, but in a 3 hour gig playing all kinds of energetic rock and roll, country and rockabilly and really shaking my bunda like theres no tomorrow, I never drop a pick.
I may play like shiiiit sometimes, but it's a very picked kind of shiiiit.
So sorry, I dont have an answer.
So ... about a hunnert?
I keep a few spares in my gear bag. But I haven't dropped a pick in dozens of gigs, and I often alternate
between hybrid picking, fingerpicking, and using a plectrum. The main thing is to remember to bring
at least one pick to the gig....which I've forgotten to do once or twice.
This is exactly how I do it.
A couple in my pockey usually does the job.
Picks may be like starfish, changing to the color of whatever is under them.
I stick my pick on my thumb and it can't fall off unless it snaps (which the Delrin one's don't)
Plectrum Management Systems...
I just now am seeing this thread, and yet that was the very first thing that popped into my head: "Guitar Player's PMS"!
I always wear jeans, and so unless I forget to get dressed before going to a gig, I always have a half dozen or more picks in my "pick pocket"...
I also have a couple of straps that have pick pockets on them, and have used those. But at a gig I will have three picks out and readily accessible: the main one (a DYI made from counter top high pressure laminate material, nearly 1mm thick & very stiff); a backup; and a D'Addario/Planet Waves DuraGrip 1.2mm for a specific tone application.
Pocket and on this: (handiest/cheapest gig item I've bought in decades!)
Some call it a "carpenter's crack" or "plumber's crack", I call it my pick purse.
No one uses these? I have been using these since the 1970's.
Solo act with computer backing tracks, so 5 or 6 in my pocket, three or four on my laptop, and a couple of dozen in the computer bag, Gawd how I hate not having a pic!
Some folks who drop quite a few use two sided tape on the bottom of the guitar.
Amazing. This solves about 4 problems I didnt know I had.
